About 11.25pm, a 55-year-old man was located injured in his car, a silver Hyundai i30 hatchback, at the intersection of Cedric Street and Karrinyup Road in Stirling.

It is believed a short time prior, the man was standing near his car that was parked near the intersection of Fry and Cedric Streets when a group of men assaulted him.   During the assault, the man was stabbed and some personal property was stolen by the group before they fled.

Detectives wish to speak to the drivers of two vehicles, a 4WD travelling on Cedric and Amelia Streets about 10.30pm and a van travelling on Felton Street, as the drivers may have information which could assist with the investigation.
